Joe Loco: Bailemos Con Joe Loco Su Piano y Ritmo

On this record, Joe Loco plays arrangements of romantic classical songs backed by a rhythm section and a vibraphone player. Loco's salsa-tinged style on the piano makes the fusion between these genres feel comfortable and natural. The bass lines are simple, the percussion is full and heavy, and the piano tends to focus more on harmony with relatively few melody-based solos. Not sure of the year on this one, but I would guess it is from some time in the 1950's. From the Tropical label.
